Please note that this is a re-advertisement. Applicants who previously responded to the advert in September 2021 need not re-apply as their applications will be considered.

The Services Sector Education and Training Authority (Services SETA) invites suitably qualified and experienced Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to apply for Discretionary Grant funding to develop Assessment Instruments/Tools for the sector’s registered occupational qualifications.

The Services Sector Education and Training Authority (Services SETA) was established and registered in March 2000 in terms of the Skills Development Act of 1998. The SETA aims to provide for the skills development needs of the services sector through, among others, awarding Discretionary Grant funding for bursaries, learnerships, Internships, etc.

The Services SETA is the designated Development Quality Partner (DQP) and Assessment Quality Partner (AQP) for most of the sector’s Occupational Qualifications. In these roles, the Services SETA is expected to fund and facilitate the development of the sector’s occupational qualifications and create the necessary capacity to conduct quality assurance activities against these qualifications, including conducting the External Integrated Summative Assessments (EISA).

To be able to conduct credible External Integrated Summative Assessments (EISA) against the sector’ occupational qualifications, the Services SETA needs to develop a Bank of Assessment Instruments/Tools for all the occupational qualifications, against which it has been designated as the Assessment Quality Partner (AQP). To this end, the Services SETA wishes to appoint a panel of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) who will develop Assessment Tools/Instruments for the sector’s registered occupational qualifications.
